Unlimited are looking for approximately 12 new independent, disabled panel members to select the next round of Unlimited commissions. Their aim is to ensure a wide range of perspectives are represented.
A selection panel is a group of people who review all the applications submitted for an award. This is initially done via an online portal for long-listing. The panel then come together online for a decision-making meeting, to select the projects that are exciting, ambitious, excellent, innovative, and led by disabled artists.
Unlimited selection panels are a chance to go behind the scenes of the commissioning process, find out about new disabled artists, and their exciting projects and ideas. It’s also a fantastic way to meet people from across the cultural sector, expand your networks, and learn from each other.
- They prioritise people who define as disabled and bring fresh perspectives, knowledge, and experience to the table.
- They’re looking for people with different artform focuses to make our panels as varied as possible, with a wide range of experience to draw from
- They’re particularly keen to hear from people who have faced barriers to getting work made at some stage and/or have a good understanding of their specialised artform.
What do we offer?
- Self-employed panel members will be paid an honorarium of £1315, and all panel members will be reimbursed for reasonable travel expenses. Access requirements will be met for all panel members.
